Review of Darlington Park, Ontario, Canada

Filed under: Camping,Canada,Places To Visit,Video — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

Mike Moon did a video review of the Darlington Park camping site in Ontario Canada. This is a 8:50 minute video that shows you far more than I could describe. If you are trapped at home wishing you could get out into the wild, watch this and enjoy the birds, flowers and wildlife.

MOON ECHOES: Tourist in my own town (Darlington Park – Ontario, Canada)

It sounds like you need to be careful which campsite you choose:

“We survived the evening just fine… very noisy. Lots of traffic, trains, whistles, certainly not what I was anticipating when I wanted to get away from it all. I thought that the traffic would ease up, but there was a constant whoosing sound of transports and cars in the distance.”

They got a new campsite further away from the highway to avoid the noise. The campsites look very private and there are lots of trees everywhere. There is a general store nearby where you can pick up supplies.

“I found the prices to be quite reasonable. The firewood was five dollars [Canadian] a pack, which is cheaper than other parks that we’ve been to. And the prices in the store were very reasonable. Good little place. Great guy was in there. He had a good attitude, good sales. Made us feel welcome and at home.”

The park is near Lake Ontario, so you can enjoy the water lapping at the shore.

  1. This hands down is the worst campground anyone could ever goto. No privacy at your campsite, especially with the park cop wanabes always driving around making noise, and kicking people out for drinking even if your 10 steps out of your campsite. The train goes by every hour and its very annoying. You also can hear the highway no matter how far of a campsite you pick. overal i give this park a 1 out of 10. If your looking for a good time away, or a relaxing one i suggest you go elsewhere.
